Sexual & Reproductive Health Services

Signature Health’s Sexual & Reproductive Health program focuses on access to low-cost or no-cost education, contraception/birth control, and medical services. Through clinics and community education, we are dedicated to promoting informed decision-making and personal choice about parenthood and sexuality, providing respectful, compassionate, nonjudgmental care. 

 

A 50-year Legacy of Serving the Community

In 2017, the Family Planning Association (founded in 1970) became part of Signature Health and now serves patients as our Sexual and Reproductive Health program. This group of caring professionals welcomes teens and adults into approachable, confidential clinics, funded in part by an Ohio Department of Health Reproductive Health and Wellness Program grant, and in compliance with Title X program regulations and guidelines.
